On Saturday morning F. and I bought our very first REAL Christmas tree.
We didn't get a very big one, but it being our first,
we both agree that he's "Oh So Very Beautiful"...
Now all we need to do is wait for wednesday to come,
so we can get him decorated.
Now I can hear you ask why on earth we have to wait until wednesday...
But the thing is, that being Belgian I have celebrated 'Sinterklaas'
on december 6 for as long as I can remember.
Is always used to LOVE that holiday,
and it's was a really big issue in our family
that the Christmas tree could NOT be set up until AFTER that day.
And I know it might sound a bit silly, but I like to honour that tradition.
Especially since lately time seems to fly faster than ever,
and I feel that holding on to little things like this,
little landmarks and special days
somehow helps to slow things down a bit...
And how about you?
Have you started decorating your home for Christmas?
And are there any special traditions you honour when it comes to decorating?
